Students of Chinese study the language, literature, and culture of Chinese-speaking countries. Study abroad is strongly encouraged and supported by the Chinese Section. It even contributes directly to a major or minor in Chinese.
Both Course and Honors majors or minors in Chinese are available. Students of Chinese also may choose to major in Asian Studies, where Chinese language courses above the first-year level as well as Chinese literature and culture courses and credit for study abroad may normally be counted toward the major. Students interested in majoring or minoring in Chinese should consult with the section head of Chinese as soon as possible.
